About Me

I am living in Danang with my wife Quyên. Currently, I work as a researcher in theoretical physics. After having lived and worked in Belgium, Spain, and Brazil, I decided that I prefer Vietnam. I play the classical guitar in much of my free time, the remainder is taken up by reading. I'm calm and quiet, more of a listener than a talker.
